Why is there no machine voting?

Machine voting is not possible because New Jersey does not yet have electronic poll books that would allow officials to check to make sure someone didn’t vote on a machine before they count their VBM ballot. Provisional ballots are counted after vote-by-mail ballots are counted so that such a determination can be made. This is a security measure for our election. To have the use of the vote-by-mail system and voting machines simultaneously, New Jersey will have to adopt electronic poll books. An electronic poll book is a system containing an electronic list of registered voters that may be transported to the polling location.
